This text describes the surgical steps of the major adult and pediatric reconstructive laparoscopic and robotic cases. It includes detailed drawings, step-wise explanations, and DVD clips provided by experts who have performed the procedures.
"Laparoscopic and Robotic Urology: Adult and Pediatric" is a unique volume focusing on the union between adult and pediatric urologic surgical techniques. The breadth of this wonderful convergence is most clearly and consistently demonstrated when minimally invasive reconstructive techniques are utilized. This volume describes in detail the surgical steps of the major adult and pediatric reconstructive laparoscopic and robotic cases. It includes detailed drawings, step-wise explanation, and access to video clips provided by experts who have performed these procedures. Pediatric urologists, adult urologists, fellows, and urology residents will find this volume to be a comprehensive, yet concise, reference for most all robotic and laparoscopic procedures that may be performed within this vast discipline.
